For you photography buffs

I was going to talk about a cat called Sgt Podge but Kate beat me to it.

Anyway Sigma have launched the worlds first Fisheye lens for dSLR's with APSC sensors (i.e. everything under £1500). Fisheyes generates massive fields of view and lots of distortion, everything looks circular. Apparently you can get some really arty effects and some really unflattering portraits.

Thinks.... when am I next meeting digi and CP?

Cats...who can figure them out!

You don't need a snazzy lens to get hugely distorted images.

You do need to carefully consider your own personal safety though.

The photo of a sunset on that page you linked to works really well with that effect.

Thanks for the link :-)
